D.C. Equality March: The Joy of Resistance (Photos)
By Advocate.com Editors
Tens of thousands of people unhappy with current administration policies on gender, race, religion, and LGBT equality marched in Washington, D.C., Sunday.
The march from the White House to the National Mall near the Capitol Sunday11 included the tens of thousands of people unhappy with current administration policies on gender, race, religion, and LGBT equality. The event included a moment of silence to remember the 49 victims of the Pulse shooting.
“There was definitely tens of thousands of people at the march,” Equality March founder David Bruinooge told the Washington Blade. “And the Mall was filling up but clearly on this hot and blistering day people were finding shade under the trees, which is great. It was a peaceful, safe day and we’re very thankful for everyone who came out for this from the beginning,” he said.
